Our Team

A few members of our Hematology – Oncology team

Our doctors, nurses, and others form a coordinated team to provide the most complete care for each child, based upon the type and stage of their disease. Primary team members include:

  • Pediatric hematologists/oncologists
  • Pediatric hematology/oncology nurse practitioners

In addition, each child's medical team includes specialists in their specific condition. For example, the team for a child with a brain tumor might include a neurosurgeon and a neuroradiologist. And an orthopedic oncology specialist might participate in a team for a child with a skeletal malignancy.

This team approach fosters an ideal exchange of knowledge and expertise, insuring that the best possible treatment plan is developed for each child.


Our physicians' knowledge and expertise include areas beyond the basics of Hematology/Oncology.
